    This is really a fantastic place for a family--lots of activities, incredibly fun hotel, convenient to the beach and shops, and just beautiful. It takes you back to another era. Has a nice little cafe, too, and outdoor seating.

    Every detail is perfect. Beautiful location, amenities, service, all top notch. Dinner at the Blue Pig Tavern was wonderful; exceptional service. Brown Room lounge very comfortable for after dinner drinks. An old world classy hotel. We will definitely be back.
